In preparation for the Oaxacan Octopus (aka "Oaxactopus"), I've begun silhouetting to figure out the best composition. My aunt was most fond of the big guy on the bottom of page 74, so I took his shape and played around with it more. I'll likely use the second study on page 76 for the final piece.
I'll have to keep in mind certain proportions to make sure it frames well as a print with varying dimensions.
The octopus is ridiculously fun to draw!
